The Way It Was in NYC Gallery Tour With Shane

It was a very long day with lots to see! From Atget’s Paris scenes to Carla Van De Puttelaar’s gigantic nudes it was a visual feast. We rode the subway uptown, down town and all around town making pictures all the while. Vivian Maier's never before seen street photos (some printed by Viv’s own hand) at the Howard Greenberg were A+. Nuri Ceylon’s moving portraits of his father at Tina Kim were perhaps my favorites but then the solarized photographs by Edmund Teske that were great.  This gallery tour was all in all an eye opening experience.  What’s going on photographically in the Big Apple was a revelation. Four feet by six feet isn’t big anymore, at least not there, with price tags from $10,000 to over $100,000. The absolutely WOW!!! (big) portraits of by Martin Schoeller must be seen to be appreciated. Another favorite. We ended the day in the pouring rain swallowed by the masses, street shooting (including some weirdo in skimpy underpants) in Times Square and at THE Christmas Tree at Rockefeller.  Thanks Shane…. Great trip!!! Click to enlarge, and please share.
